Music is the background audio (or lack thereof) featured in levels and in other screens. Most of the music is designed to be played in the levels, and as such it can be selected from the Music menu, which is repesented by a quaver and two beamed quavers, in the Level Builder. Music for bosses can be set by selecting it in the settings for the first appearing boss. The music of a level can be changed mid-stage with the Music Changer or by setting a boss to change it upon defeat.

Mega Man Maker's music files are in the NSF format to diminish the weight of the files. Due to this format's properties, tracks from non-8-bit Mega Man games are remixed to fit the 8-bit style and limitations. Tracks from Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 were recreated in software like FamiTracker by only using the 2A03 channels.

In the earlier versions the game came with a Winamp extension, but due to constantly crashing the game or resetting game volume when a new song was played it was abandoned in 1.0.2.

Trivia

  • Despite Mega Man 9 and 10 having 8-bit soundtracks, the music in the games needed to be remade for Mega Man Maker due to breaking NES limitations.
  • Mega Man 8 Midboss and Block Man's stage theme are shortened versions of the original tracks.
  • The file for Editor Theme A originally contained several tracks. Most of them were simply earlier versions of other tracks and unfinished arrangements.
  • The file for 30XX Main Theme contains a second track of complete silence.
